Don't throw those coupons away, Coupon book review and giveaway

Take a look at this book:

Kristin the author of this book sent me a copy for review.  I must tell you this is a great book for the beginner coupon queen or the pro that wants to brush up a bit.  It has all the basic laid out in it.  There is a section that explains the different types of coupons, a section that explains how to make the most out of your coupons at the grocery store and even a section on how to work the coupons at the most popular drug stores.  Oh and a bit on the history of coupons I thought that was neat I learned some facts I never knew.
I have done alot of couponing over the last year but this book was a great refresher course on all the little ins and outs to couponing.  
It has even inspired me to be better about seeking out those really really good buys and deals at the drug stores.
This book sells for $10 on amazon.com
Check it out here

Guess what!! Kristin has generously offered a copy of the book to one lucky Learning to be Thrifty reader.

  3. It might be easier to tell you what I don't use coupons for...seriously :) I use them for EVERYTHING! One way that I like to use them is by matching them up with Target store coupons so that I can stack them and get stuff for super cheap to free! Love 'em!
